Why Do We Love Afternoon Tea?

There’s nothing quite like an Afternoon Tea to really encapsulate the true spirit of Britain but why do we, as Brits, love an afternoon tea so much? Well, over the years, having served thousands of our famous afternoon teas, we’ve come to realise just why so many have fallen in love with this British tradition. Below, you’ll find just some of the reasons why people love an afternoon tea; and if by the end of reading, you start to feel those cravings coming on, fear not, we’ll be right here to book one of our famous Marygeen Manor afternoon tea experiences.

Beautiful Location – Here at Marygreen Manor, our location really does make your experience. Not only does our Manor house date back to Tudor times but we’ve managed to keep some of the original features offering beautiful décor around you. Our Tudors restaurant offers a garden room too that looks out on to our stunningly designed and landscaped gardens. It really is something special to behold and the perfect place to enjoy such a traditional delicacy.

A Different Way To Indulge – When you think of indulging, the vast majority think of a pizza, a plate full of chocolate and sweets or maybe even our favourite bottle of vino but over time, this gets a little monotonous so it’s no wonder that we’re often in search of a new way to indulge ourselves. We deserve it after all! An Afternoon Tea however, isn’t something you tend to enjoy all too often. Being such a rare treat then makes it all the more special. What’s more, when you think of indulging, it’s usually of an evening so what better way to mix things up than with a little afternoon indulgence? Think delicious finger sandwiches, clotted cream and jam with freshly baked scones and of course yummy cakes and sweet, sweet pastries.

A Sociable Way To Eat – Whatever social occasion you have coming up, we guarantee an Afternoon Tea will always put a smile on the face of all who attend. Whether it’s a birthday, a baby shower, an anniversary or even a leaving party, an Afternoon Tea is the perfect choice for the simple fact that it’s so sociable. It’s a great way of bringing people together by sharing fabulous food and of course a glass of fizz if you’re really looking to make it an extra special occasion. Reminisce of memories past, get excited over the future and relax as the food is brought to you.

The Perfect Excuse To Get Dressed Up – Just like the theatre, when it comes to Afternoon Tea, there’s an unwritten rule that tracksuit bottoms will not make the grade. Afternoon is a past time of the gentry and as such, your attire should reflect that making it the perfect excuse to go out and get dressed up, something that some of us don’t often get to do. Get your hair and make-up done, wear your new shoes and enjoy yourself.

An Excuse To Drink Prosecco – While Prosecco before midday has gathered quite the stigma, a prosecco at lunch time has never been more appropriate, especially when it’s accompanied by an Afternoon Tea here at Marygreen Manor. After all, what compliments a scone with clotted cream and jam more than a glass of fizz?

Occasions For Afternoon Tea

It’s no big secret that here at Marygreen Manor, we love nothing more than a freshly prepared Afternoon Tea. In fact, we love them so much, we’d consider them more of a necessity than a treat. We do understand however, that for some, this lavish display of Britain’s best (finger sandwiches, cakes, scones and delicious clotted creams and jams) can of course seem like a luxury to be enjoyed on special occasions. The question is; during which sort of special occasion should an afternoon tea be enjoyed? Well, we thought we’d help you out a little here and give you a rundown of the special occasions we think befit the elegance and downright indulgent nature of our splendid afternoon teas, starting with…the Baby Shower!

Baby Shower – baby showers are becoming more and more popular before (and sometimes after) the arrival of a new addition. This is where an afternoon tea, and especially our Afternoon Tea in Essex, comes into play. Not only does it give the mother-to-be the perfect opportunity to enjoy some delicious food, but it provides the perfect environment in which everyone can socialise while remaining seated. That means no excess weight on mum-to-be’s feet too.

Hen Party – while for some this may seem a little tame, it would appear hen parties have begun to get a little out of control of late and the trend of sophistication is well and truly back on its way to the top. When it comes to sophistication of course, there’s nothing quite so up there, as an afternoon tea. With refined finger sandwiches and of course, a glass of fizz to give it that extra elegant edge, it’s simply perfect.

Birthday Party – Essex is famous for its fabulous venues and party scenes but what about during the day? Every birthday girl (and boy for that matter) deserve to be treated to something special for their birthday so why not treat them to a delicious afternoon tea before they hit the high street clubs and bars? It’s the perfect way to say “Happy Birthday”!

So, if after this, you’re on the lookout for the best afternoon tea in Essex, look no further than the fabulous Marygreen Manor…we’re famous for it!
